Well we have to put him in a plaster cast and there may be some swelling so we like to keep in the hospital the day or two tubes are read make sure he's comfortable. When a bone is broken a plaster soaked bandages role not the plaster hardens to form a cast to keep the bone firmly in place so that it will mend properly. A fractured leg can become a permanent injury unless it is properly repaired and treated. In about two months when the cast is removed. Tom's leg will be as good as ever. Every new patient is examined by a member of the hospital staff. Mores never met this doctor before. He's called an intern. He's finishing his medical training.

Fascinating, this is an interesting documentary an would have been excellent in the 1960s for people who were about to go into to hospital for routine procedures and who had never been in hospital before but the music was more painful than appendicitis.
